is fair is that when you look at the folks who voted for mitt romney, 88% of them were non hispanic whites. >> non-hispanic whites. >> exactly, non-hispanic whites, and what that implies is that when you're in these conversations among conservatives sometimes when you don't have people from these other groups who can engage in these conversations you miss a great deal. and that's one reason why there are a lot of conservatives, myself included, who believe that we do have messages, ideas and strategies that would be relevant for achieving economic uplift and much else. but the problem is that when you don't have a more diverse group of people who are part of the conversation, then i think that it makes it very hard to translate that message to folks who are inclined to distrust. >> i would say that if you are going to target voters on the basis of the fact that they are african american or the fact that they are latino and try to prevent them from voting on that basis, voter suppression, that is being hostile to the interests of those groups. and if you start talking about self deportation

of ohio during the election. they did not see it coming. the romney campaign didn't see it was coming. i talked to a lot of people who said they weren't just cautiously optimistic, they were optimistic. when they found out they lost someone said it was like a death in the family. how did they get it wrong in ohio is what to look at. the question is more about african americans. they didn't think he would have the turnout he did. they just missed it. when people would raise the questions saying all the public polls suggested the president doing pretty well, the senior staff would say-- they would just dismiss those polls and say these polls are sampling democrats too heavily. that's just not the way this election is going to turn out. they just-- they just missed it. they also though-- there were two other things in ohio. if you look at the counties where romney did well relative to george bush in 200newshour. he did well in the coal county. where did he do poorly? the auto countys. you see it in the turnout. and then, i think, finally, the obama campaign was effective in turning romney i

, don, because before this election a lot of conservatives were saying that mitt romney was going to win in a landslide and you heard that and they got it incredibly wrong? how did they get it incredibly wrong, because the numbers a moment ago assume ed thd that t8 numbers and it is a good assumption that they were a historical aberration, and that his election was infused with such enthusiasm to not be matched in 2012. no way to be matched, but it was. so i will let l.z. in. >> yes, stop filibustering. >> barack obama is a phenomenal candidate and a guy that people want to believe in, so days after a butt-whooping are a best time to have a self-evaluation moment. let some rationality set in. >> okay. all right. go ahead, lz. >> well, you know, i think that will talk ed a lot about what needs to happen. they need to go back to take a look at about how to get more diverse, but it is important to remember that diversity is not an external thing. we are so used to checking things like black people, and latinos and women, but it is diversity of thought. that is where will and i separate, bec

of conservatives across the land, i really thought mitt romney was going to be elected president. well, i was quite wrong and so were most of the conservative observers and commenttators. so, america has made a choice. now, let's be clear, it was not the choice that i was hoping for, but now what? we did it without bloodshed, bullets, we did it without people with boots and badges dragging us through the streets. of course, now, the hand wringing begins as republican whine about mitt romney's campaign or mitt romney himself. look, romney won the primary and he earned the right to carry our banner. in his campaign they gave it all they had and i don't agree with those who said that the obama message of bigger government and more taxes won. it was not an election about a message. it was an election about the machinery to get out the votes for president obama. and it was a masterful, methodical effort. now, as i listened to a lot of fellow television and radio talk show hosts or even read the opinion columns of those who excoriated romney, a couple of things occurred to me. if you weren't critical of
